Book Purchases: Me? Buy books?  What a silly thought.

Thoughts and ramblings: Oh, another month gone and still no reviews? I’m working on that I promise! This past month I was in Missouri for two weeks – including for the US election, which was interesting. I also had VACATION. It was wonderful, and it definitely helped restore me to semi-normal sleep and energy levels. I spent a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday with Alix, and then spent a few days with my family in Calgary celebrating my Opa’s 88th birthday.

Fingers are crossed that one of these days, very soon, I’ll write a review. I’ve read a few really interesting books, so I definitely have lots to talk about – I just need the time to write it down for you!

What DID happen at the end of November was #graffitireviews. The Literary Omnivore has a full post that I highly recommend, outlining how the entire thing started. But the short version is that there was a silly article, Cass made a few comments on Facebook that I found so hilarious I recommended she share on Twitter, it grew into a thing, and now we’re doing it for real! Reviews are going viral! Check out the Tumblr, and then do a few of your own!

Happy December all.

    I really like the idea of Graffiti Reviews :)

    It looks like you read some interesting books this month. Are you going to review the book that I never dared review?

    Amy! Want to do a Q&A type review of the Valenti book? No pressure, it’s just that I read it recently, too and never posted about it. ALSO yay graffiti reviews :)
